    Re: My Hero Academia II - Bhyyyyyyyyy

    Bakugou scolding All Might was really interesting to me. He's generally pretty respectful to teachers and has been to All Might in the past, but he's clearly not doing so here. I don't think he's...

    Ironically, Royce is right to a degree. He's just making his points with a lot of exaggeration and prickishness. Mirio, Aizawa, and Stain are all examples of characters fighting well without a...

    Yep, Momo put her team in the best position she could in order to win. Tokoyami was good but didn't finish, and Hagakure and Aoyama didn't pull their weight at all.

    I'm having trouble seeing how Shemage actually affects anything. Like sure, Hagakure being covered in mushrooms neutralizes her main advantage, but it's hard to tell if there's a serious downside to...

    Re: My Hero Academia II - Bhyyyyyyyyy

    It's fun to joke about Horikoshi playing too much Spider-Man but he does seem to put out short or rushed chapters relatively often. He definitely seems like the type that could be easily overworked.

    Mirio's fast-forwarded last stand is immediately followed by Overhaul tearing Nighteye apart in about a minute. His combat performance is tempered a bit by needing to make Mirio look good, but I...

    It's cool that Tsuyu, Momo, and Kendo have all been the pretty clear leader of their groups so far, but I definitely agree that the lack of solo focus in a combat setting is frustrating. So many of...

    Horikoshi's action can have decent flow, he just often crams enough details in there to require the reader to think while they're reading. You have to be looking closely enough to make inferences...
